Potential Tax Law Changes

September 28, 2017

It’s been quite some time since I have been able to write another blog and much has happened with the Eagles.  Through the first three weeks the Eagles have beaten two division rivals, the Redskins and Giants, while losing to the Chiefs in Kansas City.  While the team isn’t perfect, I have to say I…

Earning by Giving

September 1, 2017

Giving Without Expectation I was sitting in a meeting the other day with the leader of a prominent non-profit in the Philadelphia area. This is a man that I have gotten to know over the past few years. To be honest, there is not a ton that I have to offer him. Yet he continues…

What Can I Write off My First Year in Business?

August 30, 2017

After a few weeks of minimal sports news, a big NBA trade occurred last week between the Cavaliers and Celtics.  After informing the Cavs that he wanted to be traded earlier this Summer, Kyrie Irving’s wish was granted.  He was shipped to the Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and a 2018 first…

Stop Cutting Corners

August 24, 2017

As I continue to remodel my kitchen, there seems to be a reoccurring theme. Every time I move onto the next phase of the project, I realize something else about how the original house was built that I need to correct. Now before my contractor friends jump on me here, I do completely understand that…

Avoiding Estimated Tax Penalties

August 24, 2017

Since we are still slow on Philly sports news, we are going to get right into the topic of the week.  As most of you know, the third quarter tax estimate deadline for individuals is less than 30 days away.   Hopefully you have paid the correct estimates for the first two quarters!  For those of…

Fighting for What Matters

August 4, 2017

Good Things Don’t Come Easy There are things in life that we need to hear over and over again. Sure, many things are easily remembered after just one time but some things we need a constant reminder. But something that’s come up a lot lately, in meetings and in my own private space, is that…

Deducting Your Car Expense

August 4, 2017

This past week was a relatively quiet week for Philadelphia sports (except for the Phillies making some trades for the future) so let’s get right to this week’s topic – deducting automobile expenses on your taxes.  This tax issue seems to be a hot topic every tax season for small business owners and employees.  So,…

July 28, 2017

John Basedow is back this week on the blog to drop some more knowledge. John is an incredibly successful entrepreneur with a wealth of knowledge. John, thanks again for taking some time to speak with me. Let’s dive right in. I often hear successful entrepreneurs use the phrase “I don’t care what other people think”…

Cash vs. Accrual Basis for Your Business’s Taxes

July 27, 2017

The Philly sports scene has been particularly quiet recently.  However, the big news this week is that the Eagles are officially beginning training camp on July 24th.  I have to admit that I haven’t been keeping up to date with everything related to the Eagles because of the Sixers draft and the slew of NBA…

The Healthy Entrepreneur

July 21, 2017

Last week my wife and I bought a juicer. I am a bit of a health nut when it comes to diet and working out. I have to be honest, I don’t always put into practice what I read but I really enjoy researching all things health related. I have been reading a lot about…

Reconcile, Reconcile, Reconcile!

July 18, 2017

Since my last article, the Philadelphia sports world has been particularly quiet.  The biggest news has come from the Sixers during the NBA free agency period.  As most of you may know, the Sixers recently drafted Markelle Fultz with the #1 pick in the draft.  He will be paired with Ben Simmons in the starting…

I’m Back

July 13, 2017

It has been a few months since my last post and quite a lot has happened to say the least. One of the main reasons that I write this blog is so that you can get to know me a bit more. I have found that in business, relationships are everything. You are going to…
